Healthy Habit 3 – Eat On the Bright Side
Good nutrition is not a black-and-white issue. When it comes to the food we eat, color is a cue for optimal health. That is because many of the pigments that fruits and vegetables glean their dynamic shades from are considered phytonutrients (antioxidants that can halt the age-accelerating, cell-damaging impact of free radicals in the body). So if you aim to eat the rainbow every day, you will automatically consume a greater diversity of antioxidant firepower.
Action Plan: When pushing your cart through the produce aisle, aim to fill your meals with plenty different shades such as dark-green leafy veggies, yellow bell peppers or squash, orange sweet potatoes, vibrantly hued berries and more.
